Internationally, the alcohol and other drug (AOD) field has an increasing focus on recovery-oriented care, however there has been little research addressing the impacts in Australia. This study explores the attitudes of AOD clinicians toward recovery-oriented care in Victoria. Data was collected from 50 AOD clinicians and managers across six AOD services. Data collection included completion of a structured questionnaire addressing recovery attitudes and beliefs and semistructured group interviews. Although participants agreed with the broad concept of recovery, there was disagreement over the appropriateness of recovery as a term. The findings support that the development of a set of guiding recovery principles would be more useful than a simple definition.
